A Ripple in Her Water

May 29, 2008
By Alexandra Lowrie, Havelock, NC

The river she wanders
begins to fork.
Her future lies uncertain.
A ripple in her once calm water.

The people she trusts
begin to drift.
Her lifelines float away.
A ripple in her once calm water.

The work she does
begins to suffer.
Her anchor has sunk.
A ripple in her once calm water.

The man she loves
Is caught in a riptide.
Her raft of security is leaking.
A ripple in her once calm water.

The river she wanders
begins to fork.
Her every decision will bring about change.
A splash in her once too calm water.
